Title

  • Bills — National Integrity Commission Bill 2018 (No. 2); Third Reading
  • National Integrity Commission Bill 2018 (No. 2) - Third Reading - Pass the bill

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>I understand that no amendments have been circulated. Does any senator require a committee stage? If not, I will call Senator Waters to move the third reading.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Larissa Waters</p>
  • The majority voted in favour of a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2019-09-09.14.1) to pass the bill. In parliamentary jargon, they voted to read the bill for a [third time](https://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html). This means that the bill will now be sent to the House for their consideration.
  • ### What is the bill's main idea?
  • The [bill](http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;query=Id:legislation/billhome/s1154) was introduced in order to establish an independent public sector anti-corruption commission for the Commonwealth, to be known as the Australian National Integrity Commission.
  • <p>I move:</p>
  • <p class="italic">That this bill be now read a third time.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>The question is that the bill be read a third time.</p>
